Static and Surrender in Song & Conversation Saturday, August 24th

Renee & Irish Greg’s Pop Up in partnership with Inside Lands House Concerts proudly presents Static and Surrender in Song & Conversation. an intimate evening of music and stories at a gorgeous location in Piedmont.

We’ll send address details upon purchase.

Limited space for patrons at the $5 level.

Every once in a while, paths cross at just the right time, in the right place, and within the right circumstances. Such is the case for San Francisco alternative rock upstarts Static and Surrender—Jeff Campbell [lead vocals, guitar], Adam Schuman [guitar, vocals], and John Schuman [drums]. By 2016, brothers John and Adam had established themselves in popular Bay Area stalwarts such as The Trophy Fire, landing critical acclaim and gigging alongside everyone from Dredg to The Dear Hunter. Within that same scene, Jeff earned recognition by receiving national songwriting awards, shared the stage with titans such as John Mayer, and fronted Pine and Battery, among other acts.

One night, a chance encounter between Jeff and Adam paved the way for what would become Static and Surrender.

“I ran into Adam and his wife at a restaurant,” recalls Jeff. “We started talking about the static and stagnation we’d both been feeling about our careers, and how we’d both sort of surrendered to it. A day later, he sent me a bunch of demos. As soon as I heard them, it just felt right. It’s the brother dynamic that attracted me to Adam and John. They’ve been playing music together for two decades. They finish each other’s sentences, in life and on stage. At the same time, we grew up in similar households. When we met, it felt like we’d known each other forever. Everything fit. It was like we were meant to play together all along.”

Dan Bern: An Evening of Song, Art & Conversation Saturday, June 29th at the Haight Street Art Center

Patrons of the Show at the $5 a month level get FREE admission (+1) including a complimentary adult beverage. Become a patron or RSVP.

Dan Bern has released some two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first CD on Sony/Work in 1997. Either fronting various bands or as a solo performer, he is convincing, funny and timely, with an unassuming tip of the hat to the spirits of the past greats, all while sounding fresh and original. Dan’s songs pack a punch, and are engaging and often cinematic.

Bern’s singular songwriting has led to work on such projects as the Judd Apatow features Walk Hard—the Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek. His songs have appeared in countless TV shows and independent films, been covered by The Who’s Roger Daltrey.

In addition to the music, Dan Bern is a prolific painter, with works hanging in The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and The Bobby Feller Museum. He has published several books, the latest being a collection of poems, “encounters,” which recount his real-life encounters with, among others, Wilt Chamberlain, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Carter and Hunter S. Thompson.

Join us for an amazing evening of music and conversation to raise some money for a great cause.

Ticket includes 6-7pm happy-hour and the From Detroit with Love: Grande Ballroom poster exhibit.

Whiskerman is a rock-and-roll overture to the great unraveling. Over the last 7 years the Oakland band has developed an underground reputation for tackling the sublime with their ambitious songwriting, thunderous stage show, and acute lyricism. They have since emerged as an engine of the Bay Area’s revitalized psychedelic and festival scenes.

Scott Mickelson is an artist/producer from the Bay Area. His debut release Flickering was on the Grammy ballot for Best Folk Album and Best Roots Music Performance. His follow up full-length A Wondrous Life is receiving great reviews in the US and abroad. Mickelson will be playing his first European tour this Fall.

The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men are five young men from the Santa Cruz Mountains that have been playing around the Bay Area and beyond since 2010. They play a style of music that is rock and roll in the most classic sense, melodic, rootsy and heartfelt. The songwriting duo of Jamie and Kellen show an obvious love for a bygone era of music and for groups like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Neil Young and The Beatles as well as a sense of maturity and experience beyond their years.
